    I have been working at Harvard Medical School full-time

    Pros

    Good for future job prospects. Get to do cutting edge science in a well-funded environment

    Cons

    Most postdocs work 60-80 a week. Working weekends and long days are expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about Postdocs as people who are working for very little money with little future job security and stop prioritizing their well-being and work/life balance behind everything else.

    Positive Outlook
